The front of the Huawei Nova 2S fits in with the ongoing wave of big-screen/small-bezel phones including the OnePlus 5T and the latest from Huawei's own Honor line, the Honor V10, which was just launched yesterday.

With the Huawei Nova 2S expected to compete in a mid-to-upper range segment of the handset market, it seems as if the manufacturer is playing it safe. The promotional images for the smartphone were posted recently on the Chinese social network website Weibo, revealing that the Huawei Nova 2S will be officially announced on December 7.

The phone will reportedly run Android 8.0 Oreo and has a 3,340mAh battery. Earlier reports suggest that the front camera will be made of a single 20-megapixel sensor. It's up for debate whether or not a phone actually needs the huge amounts of power that recent flagships offer, and it's likely that the Nova 2S will handle pretty much any task you throw at it. It starts at 2699 yuan ($408 / Rs. 26,350) for the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version, 2999 yuan ($454 / Rs. 29,265) for 6GB RAM+64GB and 3399 yuan ($514 / Rs. 33,165) for a special edition Yixing Zhang variant that comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
